A Girl's Best Friend

"Pinky Novak" via by Lucy Snowe Photography


Happy Friday, lovelies.
What is it about a girl and her dog?
We just love 'em!
I'm working on a fab commission right now
that includes a very chic woman and her dog
and it made me realize it's one of my favorite things to illustrate.
Don't they just go together ... girls and dogs?

I also had dogs on the mind because of a recent
feature on The Coveteur ...
on Linda Rodin, sixty-five year old model, stylist and
now skin care line entrepreneur.
Linda has a beautiful silver poodle named Winky.
I loved the Coveteur's photo of him so much
that I thought he deserved illustration fame.
My illustration of Winky isn't quite finished.
I had planned include him in this post, but ...
ahhhh well ... soon.
Doesn't he have such personality?

So I send you off into the weekend, friends,
dreaming of girls and dogs ...
so appropriate since yesterday was
National Pet Day ...
perhaps you'll be walking one of your own
this weekend?
If so, tell me about your dog ...
you never know,
 he may be inspirational enough to
show up in an illustration sometime ;)
Have a wonderful weekend, darlings!

Such cute images here, Sandy...I LOVE the top one ;-)
I'd be lost without my gorgeous dogs, Bertie the miniature schnauzer lots of attitude and fun and Basil the cavalier king charles...who doesn't really believe he is a dog but ROYALTY ;-)
Have a great weekend.
